Cohabitation Agreements

California Domestic Partnership Lawyers

If you are thinking about moving in with your partner or are already living with your partner, a Los Angeles family law attorney from Claery & Hammond, LLP can help you draft a cohabitation agreement. A cohabitation agreement is used to set up and reinforce legal rights between an unmarried couple, same sex or not. Without the proper legal documents, matters that arise due to the end of the relationship, whether caused voluntarily or due to someone passing away, can become overly complicated. The proper action must be taken to ensure things will be handled as you would want them to if the unexpected ever happens.

Cohabitation agreements define property rights and liability issues that exist in same sex relationships. If you are living with your partner or are considering living with your partner, we highly suggest you speak with our California domestic partnership attorney about a cohabitation agreement.

Abilities and benefits of cohabitation agreements include:

  • Designating specific assets as individual property.
  • Assigning property to community property.
  • Creating specific responsibilities and roles in the relationship.
  • Establishing roles for parenting responsibility.
  • Legally acknowledging that a cohabitation relationship exists.
